Weather Forecast for Saturday's Game Does a 360

Recommended Posts

Look at the days.  It's 80% on Friday (ie it's raining then).  If there's rain on Saturday (at 50%), it is carryover, likely in the early morning, then ending.  

 

Game time will be fine.

I never trust a weather forecast until the hour prior to the game. It will be what it is. Just deal with what is in front of you.

I am not worried about it. It will probably be a little colder but a few flurries don’t scare me. Those weather forecast change so much. Half the time when you look at them a week ahead they end up being wrong.

Give it a few days.  It might do a 360, back to 49 and calm.

 

That's the problem playing their style in KC, though.  Rain, sloppy field - perhaps homefield isn't an advantage.

If it's above 40 at gametime, snow shouldn't be accumulating.  They'll have the field covered as well.  It just depends on how much it rains during the game.

i hope it snows or rains im telling you this is not the old colts team with manning . luck plays fine in the rain, and we are built for the rain we have one of the best run defenses in the league and have a great running game and offensive line .   

 

we can stop the run and run it down their throat .  their passing game is their best weapon

Both AFC divisional games on pace to be some crazy weather games. Nice.

To be honest I looked at it. It doesn’t look crazy.  It says less then a inch and most likely by game time will be over. It does look like it might be a middle colder.

Would love love love to see bad weather. That would suits us and our mauling offensive line

Sunday will be a bad day for the guy who does the Chiefs' laundry, however. Lots of mud and grass stains on the backs of their D-Line and LB jerseys, and some nasty stains on the inside of the uniform pants.

Ha... yeah a 360 would be right back to the original forecast. This is what happens when you get old.

Yep. Typical Midwest weather for ya. No one really knows what the weather does in this region until you step outside and check the ole “weather rock”!

I think it's way, WAY too early to be able to predict anything with any certainty.

 

You may be right.    But all anyone is doing at this point is guessing....

Give me feet of rain! I want all the rain possible, because we can run and defend the run very well. KC can't run or defend the run well.

I was just curious yesterday and looked at NE weather it looked ok during the week and then the bad weather came in on the weekend. I was like him the Pats must have their own jet stream. 

I just found it funny. 

I'm not worried about the weather in KC. Colts will be fine.

With Mahomes arm, I dont know that it matters that much. 

It matters a lot. Did you not see Super Bowl XLI?

Weathermen are like lawyers. It's like they can say whatever they want and get away with it....even when they are wrong. 

 

If it's 50 and sunny or 20 and snowing, RUN THAT BALL!!

It certainly bogged down the high powered colts offense at times. Or at least appeared to. Maybe the patriots just knew our plays from filming us and bugging their locker room and it had nothing to do with the weather!

It had got to be harder to throw and catch a wet ball, not to mention run and cut etc. I'd be surprised if mahomes can overcome all of that because he has a good arm but it certainly can happen.

To add to what you mention; timing is thrown off when receivers can't make sharp cuts in their routes due to poor field conditions.  If Wilson & company can press at the line it could completely throw the timing off on the shorter routes.I

 

This is also Mahomes' first playoff game.  A lot of variables on him...

So what's your point??

All weatherman/weatherwomen do IS guess.  The only difference between us and them is they get paid for it, haha.

First playoff game could mean a lot. I mean D. Watson looked like absolute garbage against us and it was his first playoff game. Wouldn't be the first time a rookie gets a bit rattled by his first dose of playoff football.

What's my point?      Seriously?

 

Did you see the post I was responding to?      That poster proclaimed what the weather WILL BE and assured all of us that everything is going to be great.

 

He has no way of knowing that.    He's guessing.     He may be 100 percent right,  but it's not because he knows anything.   

 

Ad no,  professional weather forecasters are NOT guessing.

I did try...I did say "haha" at the end.

    • I would think about giving them the #34 which is a good trade for both teams, then if we do draft a WR at 26 that would make sense.
    • I think you offer them #34 and that's it......  maybe add the compensation 4th rounder.  You'd absolutely have to be happy with netting Q. Nelson, Frank Clark (and a big contract) Braden Smith, and Kemoko Turay and Jordan Willis (last 22 from trading jets #52 pick   All for moving from 3 to 6 last year......   Don't know if someone will beat an offer of #34 and second 4th rounder...... but I'd absolutely throw it on the table and see.  Clark is an awesome talent at a near impossible position to fill via trade.... he's 25, produced at a high level, very healthy over his career.... not a big locker room issue.  Those are the guys you hope to draft so you CAN pay them big money to keep....  so I view the big contract as a given, a necessary evil.  The Colts dream of having a DE that is good enough to necessitate a huge contract, here is one, go get him.
    • Well, I appreciate you straightening out the information.  That still isn't the number of possible schedules, it's just the number they created based on the financial needs mixed with the venue availability issues and other stuff.   There are some horrendous schedules for certain teams out there.  Whatever human intervention took place, they clearly didn't care about screwing teams.  Oakland and Tampa got it the worst and it was needless.  But money is all that matters, not the health of the players or fairness of competition.  That much is clear.  
    • I didn't suggest anything. I'm just saying that by applying you logic to everyone on the roster, we shouldn't need to upgrade anything. Or does that just hold true to WR?
    • Simple.  It means we need to continue to look elsewhere for someone ready to play out of the box.  Someone who shines, even if its just as a rookie.  I would suggest the draft and we hope that Cain's brief spark before injury was more than fools gold.  Johnson and Paschal had brief moments where they appeared capable but certainly were far from Elite talent.  Rogers and the rest of the guys on the roster after Hilton and Funchess seem like cannon fodder for the most part.  We need elite talent.  We need elite speed.  We need elite hands.  We need elite route running.  In essence, we need SOMETHING to be elite about our qualified #2 and #3.  I didn't see anything that suggested "Elite" from any of these guys last year.  Did you? Someone will be #2 even if they're terrible.  There WILL be a #2.  What I think most people hope for is that the #2 has something elite, if not many things elite about their skill set.  Outside of Hilton, that isn't a word that applies to the backups from last year and camp bodies.     Are you going on the record to say we have our full time, long term #2 and eventual #1 when Hilton is gone on the roster?  Who would that be?  And no matter how you answer, using your criteria, what supposed practical value is that supposed to have?     What practical value does my opinion have? At least the same value as any opinion you or anyone else shares.  None of us have power over the team.  The point of a message board is to post opinions and discuss.  You apparently disagree with my statement, so let's hear who our #2 elite talent is among the scrubs? Settling for a #2 without elite talent is what we did last year.  Ryan Grant was devoid of anything elite and it showed.     Questions?
